The Austrian architectural firm Dietrich/Untertrifaller is a representative of the Neue Vorarlberger Bauschule, which pursues a sustainable building style as well as the harmonious integration of buildings in their surroundings. The architects of Dietrich/Untertrifaller designed one of their unique spatial concepts in wood for the Altstadt Vienna. The simple, dark grain of the wood-paneled wall has an organic feel that brings the space to life. A clever glass detail connects the bathroom to the outside world, allowing one to look directly at the Ulrich Church across the street from the shower. The firm also leaves its unique mark in the city; it was commissioned to generalize the Volkstheater, designed buildings at the Naschmarkt, and added another hall to the Wiener Stadthalle.
In a similar vein to Dietrich/Untertrifaller, architect Adolf Krischanitz uses a wooden wall made of knotty oak as a mediator between art and nature in his Raumkunstwerk #64.
